    Oh, he is gaycarebear. I don't know if he saw the BB/HDD predictions, but I think he is making those prediction based solely on this first report, but we should stick to the official predictions we have seen.

    Had BM shipped as many copies of SN as Sony (likely) did of BA, SN would have sold accordingly, and certainly not a million as there would not have been a million to sell..So
    when you shoot for a million there has to be alot alot of product on shevles to make sure not a single werson walks away empty handed.
    I think people absolutely walked away empty handed this weekend with BA. Places sold out, alot of places. So you don't have a count of what "would have sold" (which I think could have goon past 400, which was my original prodiction) you have what did sell, what was available to sell. And that can't be much past 300 cause the availablility is going to limit the outcome period.
    I am not saying it was a bad strategy for them. You don't want a whole bunch of product not moving. But at the same time, it is much harder to "make up" sales once they are lost. Example: how many of those stores that sold out are going to reorder? And how many? and when is the product going to arrive?
    Adele has sold amazingly well. And we gotta hope that Carries album can have the kind of ground swell that 21 experienced. Cause then over time the retailors catch on that they have to have 21 in stock. It's a runaway hit. This could happen to BA. I know alot of friends who are responding to this album much more favorably than to PO.
    But the coming weeks are so important. They have got to get product on those shelves immediately.
    But anyway, I think the label was shooting for about 300 based on the way they sold it to the market place. So they got what they wanted. Unfortunately, I feel they under cut themselves and could have easily moved more had there been enough to move.
    Again, for TS to move a million cd's in a week, there had to be at least 1.5 million on floors to move.
    Certainly there was not thing like that for Carrie so we simply will not know what she "could have" sold. WE can only assume what the label wanted to get moved. And that they are happy with the result.
    If I remember correctly, BM shipped out 2 Million copies of SN! They hit every venues possible, STArbucks and small outlets along with all the big one. Taylor was all over the place!!!

    Yeah, I don't see her getting anywhere near 300K for the first week. I think it will be a stretch for her to even get 200K at this point. 52% is in and it's only like 60K.

    It's 52% of retailers, not sales.
